Cervical Cancer Storytelling in Zambia

USC Institute for Global Health representatives traveled to Zambia alongside American Cancer Society and Zambian Cancer Society in 2012 to meet and interview local cancer survivors, health workers and activists during the 6th Stop Cervical Cancer in Africa Conference.The event, organized by the Princess Nikky Breast & Cervical Cancer Foundation and hosted by the Government of Republic of Zambia and other political groups, served as a forum for African first ladies and health stakeholders and addressed the burden and prevention of cervical cancer in Africa. Aiming to aid the organizations’ cancer awareness endeavors through visual storytelling, the Institute helped film and photograph volunteer participants and handed over several video cameras to empower the interviewees’ own storytelling.
